This morning, claimID reached a milestone we’ve been eyeing for a few weeks.
This is a big deal for us, as our service is fairly unique among identity companies. We’re hyper-focused and we’re free. We’ve had incremental, steady growth since we launched over two years ago.
Each user is an important piece of the greater goal – a better understanding and collective awareness of how important the identity layer will be as our work and personal applications become more people-based. Identity stands alone as the next major shift in how we communicate through the mediated space of the Internet. Being able to verify claims made by the person ‘on the other end’ will continue to become more and more important.
OpenID is an elegant way forward – and we’re very glad to be playing our part.
Thanks to everyone who’s proudly displaying their claimID profiles on pages far and wide.
On to the next 50k!
